Biden: Wearing a mask is a 'patriotic act' amid 'wartime effort' to fight Covid-19

In remarks at the White House Thursday afternoon, US President Joe Biden acknowledged the uphill battle his administration faces to vaccinate enough Americans to achieve immunity at any significant level.

“The brutal truth is it's going to take months before we can get the majority of Americans vaccinated, so, while we increase vaccinations, we're gonna take steps necessary now to slow the spread of the diseases as well," he told reporters Thursday.
“One of our 100 day challenges is asking the American people to mask up for the first 100 days, the next 99 days," Biden added.
"The mask has become a partisan issue unfortunately, but it's a patriotic act. But, for a few months to wear a mask, no vaccines, the fact is that they’re the single best thing we can do, they’re even more important than the vaccines, because they take time to work." (my boldface - w.B.)
